Lexandro D'Arquebus Pt 2

It was blocking the face too much.
I have starting the painting process,it will be three main layers
Steel,Red Primer,Yellow
This is the first layer a black primer layer with Alclad II Steel and Stainless Steel airbrushed on.
Next I use making fluid and then the Red primer.

150mm Imperial Fist Lexandro D'Arquebus Pt 1

I have started making progress on my 150mm Marine,a Hurricane/Tropical Storm tends to do that.
I have decided to make a Large model of one of my favorite characters from the 40k books,
Lexandro D'Arquebus from the novel Space Marine and Inquisition War.
As a Pre-heresy addict I had to go and give him mk5 Greaves and cod piece.
Using FW brass etch and GW icons I think I did a pretty good job modeling him.
Now the power is back on it is time to paint...

Sons of Horus Landraider Cthonian

I have decided to rework Cthonian to better match the current army.
After the paint job I gave it a light coat of Glosscote and busted out the Burnt Umber Oil paint for a pin wash around crevasses and rivets.
I then used a hair drier to speed the drying waiting until the thinner I used for the wash to evaporate.
I then used a Large brush slightly damp with thinner and created downward streaks on the sides and along the top I went with direction of movement front to rear.
Now it dries for 2 days while it all sets in.

I had this great old model sitting around,so I bought two more on E-bay to make a squadron
This is the Katulan Reaver Land Speeder.
I figurged the fast attack should be Reavers as well.

All Hail the Warmaster in Progress

I have been working on this neat Horus model I got my hands on.
He is a slight bit bigger than I would like seems dead on perfect for you True Scale guys a normal marine barely hits his chest.
Either way this is one of the better Horus models I have worked on.
I have the armor highlights finished and I am going to work the gold next.

Sons of Horus Chaplain/Lodgemaster

I want to make this a very versatile army so I felt I needed a Chaplain.
Though in the Sons of Horus this would of Probably been Sergar Targost the LodgeMaster.
I used a Chaos skull helm with a Severan Loth Honor Guard chest.
The head of the Chaos Lord Staff makes for a great Croxius head and bezerker arms are perfect for making the FW mk3 into assault poses.

Sons of Horus Company Champion

The last member of the command squad I had to work on that is not a veteran marine was the Company Champion.
I gave him Mk3 Armor for added protection in close combat but with a Mk4 helm for the more advanced sensor suites.

Sons of Horus Land Raider Mk1

I took this right off of page 39 in the Horus Heresy Anthology.
A dark menacing Land Raider simply marked with the Banner waving high.
I used thin brass sheet for the banner.

I finished off the last 5 members of the 10 man Tactical squad.

40k Scale Newspaper and Propagada Poster Tutorial

I have found an easy way to make Propaganda Posters and Newspaper for use on your 40k bases or scenery.
First cut off the foil from the top of a wine bottle
Then flatten it out and prime it with a light colored primer.
I used Tamiya
Then basecoat it with a few coats of Dheneb Stone and draw a grid with the boxes being the size of the poster or newspaper
Then paint or use a micro pen to draw your images.
Here the top six are painted with Chaos Black and Scorched Brown
The bottom six are done with a micron pen.
Once finished spray a layer of Matte Varnish
Once dry use scissors and cut out the pages and give them a slight ruffle and you now have great basing and scenery material
